40pc of customers see savings from Daily Maersk

Maersk’s “Daily Maersk” service has saved money for two in five customers, according to a survey by the shipping line.

The service was launched a year ago on the Asia–North Europe trade lane. It offers a daily cut-off at the same time every day, seven days a week, and always with the exact same transport time.

The idea was to compensate for slower transit times with improved reliability. A year on Maersk said that an average of 98 per cent of cargo arrived on time.

And a survey of 175 customers found that 42 per cent reported that they had saved money on logistics costs as a direct result of using Daily Maersk.
